Jb65rams Posted April 10, 2022 Share Posted April 10, 2022 Only have one kit in the stash that qualifies, Tamiya’s 1/48 Rufe, so this seems like a good time to build. The A6M2-N floatplane was developed from the Mitsubishi A6M Type 0 mainly to support amphibious operations and defend remote bases. It was based on the A6M-2 model 11 fuselage, with a modified tail and added floats. A total of 327 were built, including the original prototype. (From Wikipedia) This will form part of a small long term Floatplane Fighter themed project. Not really sure where my interest in floatplane fighters came from, but to date I have built a; Spitfire Vb “Floatfire”. 1/48 Airfix Vb + Silver Cloud conversion. Wildcat F3F “Wildcatfish”. 1/48 Hobby Boss kit. Still to add to the collection; 1/48 What If 109 from Halberd Models Messerschmitt Bf.109W Kit. And still to purchase 1/48 Loire 210 by Fonderie Miniature, if I find one. 1/48 Tamiya Kawanishi N1K1 Kyofu Type 11 Originally tooled in 1973 it looks like it should be a nice simple build. 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
